We discuss the use of Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) to drive an Information Retrieval (IR) system. Our hybrid CBR-IR approach takes as input a standard frame-based representation of a problem case, and outputs texts of relevant cases retrieved from a document corpus dramatically larger than the case base available to the CBR system. While the smaller case base is accessible by the usual case-based indexing, and is amenable to knowledge-intensive methods, the larger IR corpus is not. Our approach… CONTINUE READING
